Select Enve G23 Front Disc Rim 700c

Details

The ENVE G23 Tubeless Clincher Disc Rim is the definition of a true disc gravel rim. At 330 grams, ENVE's lightest 700c tubeless rim accelerates quickly and ascends with ease. Armed against pinch flats with the patent pending Wide Hookless Bead, the G23 is tough and relentless on road, path or trail. The G23 is a 700c tubeless carbon clincher rim, with a generous 23mm internal width, specifically conceived to meet the performance and ride quality demands of serious mixed surface cyclists. With an inner rim width of 23mm the G23, is designed to be paired with gravel treads between 35mm and 45mm. While 35mm-45mm tires provide ample control and traction for most gravel riding endeavors, they do not offer much by way of pinch-flat protection. Despite 'minimum PSI' markings to the contrary, many riders are experimenting with pressure setting in the 20s. The forward-looking G23 is ahead of the trend using ENVE's Wide Hookless Bead anti-flat technology, which provides a larger more forgiving surface during bottom outs, protecting the tire from the dreaded pinch-flat. This technology means you can ride the tire pressures you want, confidently, without limitations. The G Series are intended for tubeless applications and features a molded bead-lock to ensure that your tires will remain secure and sealed to the rim over even the roughest terrain. Made in Ogden, Utah. Rim is sized for 35-45c tire widths.

High spoke counts (having a lot of spokes) and 3X lacing increase the robustness and durability but come with a weight penalty (heavier). Low spoke counts (having less spokes) and 2X lacing decreases the robustness and durability but come with a weight advantage (less weight). You can run a lower spoke count on carbon rims because of the stiffness/strength of carbon. If you need some help or advice, feel free to call or email us. We'll make recommendations based on your unique needs. 1-800-688-8600 or support@coloradocyclist.com.

Description

Your Chris King custom wheelset with Enve G23 Carbon Disc rims is proudly handbuilt in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA.
Every wheel we turn out is built completely by hand to your specifications. All wheels are tensioned, stress-relieved, then re-tensioned before final truing. We have been building custom wheels since 1977 and take great pride in building the finest wheels available.

These rims can be used with standard tires and tubes, or tubeless tires. (For tubeless ready, please order tubeless tape and valves.) Never exceed your tire's recommended tire pressure.

Please Note:

  • Our wheels are built with a 2-cross or 3-cross lacing pattern (3-cross recommended.)
  • If you intend to use tubeless tires, make sure to select tubeless tape (from the rim tape pull-down menu) and to purchase tubeless valves (available in optional items at the bottom of your build.) Further, select tires from the "Tubeless Ready" tire selection.
  • If you choose to select optional items they will be installed on your wheels (with the exception of the sealant) unless otherwise specified. The sealant is not added because it can leak during shipping. If you are picking up your wheels at our retail location, we can add the sealant for you.
  • Manufacturer warranties are honored for the parts included in your build.
  • Custom wheels typically ship from our shop between 1-3 weeks after you've placed your order depending on how busy our shop is. However, if a part is not immediately available - from us or from our vendors - your build may take longer. We do our best to keep you updated on the situation, and are always happy to provide updates if you reach out. The easiest way to contact us for updates is to send us an email to support@coloradocyclist.com and we will respond as quickly as we can.
Nipple Information
Alloy nipples are much lighter than brass nipples (approximately 20g per wheel) and are recommended for light weight builds. Brass nipples are stronger and less expensive. We've been successfully building wheels with both for many years.

Spoke Information
Colorado Cyclist primarily uses DT Swiss stainless spokes in our builds. This has been our choice for wheel building since the late 1970's and we certainly owe part of our wheel building success to the strength and longevity that DT Swiss spokes offer. We also use the very popular, lightweight and bladed Sapim CX-Ray spokes and have had excellent success with them. Spoke weight, as well as a spoke Performance Chart, are provided in the pull-downs that you'll use to pick your spokes. The Perfomance Chart should be used as a guide to compare the various spokes. However, there are so many variables involved in building a wheel properly (ie. rider weight, terrain, intended use, price, etc.), you may end up with questions. If you need some help or advice, feel free to call or email us. We'll make recommendations based on your unique needs. 800-688-8600 or support@coloradocyclist.com.
